The only problem I see here is that DSS uses completely different tuner technology then cable and OTA. So it would be virtually impossible to make a box that would work with both cable and DSS even if they used the same CableCARD technology for decrypting. That's not to say I don't think they too should be forced to standardize and allow 3rd party manufacturers to produce products that work with their service. I just don't think that such a device will be completely interchangeable between cable and DSS.
